I can't help but feel a little bad for Kyle Williams.

I don't think bitter, but envious perhaps?  Lee Smith said he called Kyle (whom he knew from his first stint with the Bills) and asked his view on Allen and where the Bills were headed, and that what Kyle said sold him - that Allen was the QB he wished the Bills had had during his entire career instead of the final year.

 

I enjoyed watching Kyle Williams play and think he seems like a pretty decent guy so I am not going to let him influencing Lee 'Yellow Flag' Smith come to Buffalo ruin that for me.

Out of all of his year here, we failed to win consistently and aside from the one play off appearance he didn't see much of it, period. 

 

The year after he leaves, we have this fantastic season and the best start in 20 years. I wish he would have been able to be apart of something like this. 

 

I'm sure he's happy for the organization but I can't help but wonder if he's a little bitter that in his 13 years here, we couldn't put this type of team on the field with him. 

 

Dont worry... he knows it’s a soft schedule 😎

He's still pretty involved with the team. He did the narraration for the Bills Hard Knockoff (Just made that name up while I was typing this) on YouTube. Also helped Oliver out during training camp. Gave a pretty cool speech to the players about what this team actually means to the community. (Paraphrasing) "Teams in LA, Chicago, New York. They're luxuries. The people there are there to woo clients and such. In Buffalo, the people there are the die hard fans who love this team."

 

Wouldn't be surprised if he's brought back in some sort of coaching role in the next year or two.

Loved Kyle. One of my favorite Bills. Thst said, he was at the end of his career. He went when he needed to and I think he did better as a "trainer" then he would have as a player this spring. He can know this. The D is special and he helped make it that way.

Damn Kyle, I wish you could have been a part of our best start in 20 years and a good season?  I can't get there. 

 

I'd feel bad for Kyle if we win the super bowl - I'd obviously wish he could be part of that.

I feel for Kyle, but he left on his own terms. Unlike Eric Woods, who had to leave the game because of his health. 

 

On the same note. How much fun would be if Terrance McGee and Freddie Jackson were also part of this. I know Terrance is a bit of a stretch because he played so long ago, but no less deserving IMO. 

 

Even though there is a lot to be proud of, up to this point. There is still so much work left to be done. Lets keep it rolling. 

 

GO BILLS!!!

Meatball helped break that damn curse, running one in for a touchdown no less.
 

He’s a Bills legend for sure. He doesn’t need this season for that.

 Maybe he was the problem.

Yeah man... he was solely the problem. I agree.

Shaping up to be much like Don Mattingly's career with the Yankees.  Played all those years with no playoffs, then got to make a brief playoff appearance before retiring and then the team had great success after he left.

I liked Kyle. But I feel worse for Takeo Spikes.  

 

Yeah, Bills fans convinced him to sign here, and that was it for his career basically.

Man if this team really turns into something long term, Kyle is going to be well-remembered as a career Bill who helped set the tone for McD and the whole deal that playoff-drought breaking season.

 

Kyle's initials are scratched in the concrete of the foundation.

Very well said indeed !

Kyle is still in touch with the team.  I'm sure they'll include him appropriately as the team has success.   He was an important foundation for what McBeane are building, and they won't forget.

Frankly, I don't feel one bit sorry for Kyle.

 

Sincerely,

Yup, as a Yankees fan I’m reminded of Don Mattingly- same situation
